Grade 5 and Grade 2

Packing lunches has never been my favourite activity. I try to give the girls different things to eat but so how or another they end up with sandwiches, veggies and fruit.
With school only a few weeks away, I’m trying to come up with some different ideas to make lunch more exciting for the girls. The balanced day breaks still can be a challenge. I try to give them a bunch of little things to eat so that they can pick and choose what they eat at each break.
This Brocolli, Chicken & Pesto Rotini Salad would be fun in smaller portions!
Use all of the ingredients as listed on the recipe and follow the directions for the regular recipe.
To make it “bento-style” (and this might sound a little funny), take the dish a part. Take 3 containers and separate out the chicken, broccoli and the remainder of the salad. This will allow your kids to have finger foods!
I know that my girls love to have fun with with there food and there is nothing more fun than eating with their hands!
So parents…if you’re stuck in a the sandwich-rut like me, think in side the box!
Lauren was very excited about going back to school! So excited, that when I called this morning she talked a mile a minute and very loudly.
Rachel was excited…but a bit more reserved. She’s not a morning person (much like me).
I can’t wait to hear all about their first day when I get home this evening.
Every year at a local mall, the Oakville Literacy Council has a book sale. It happens the week after the May long weekend.

I remember reading so many Choose Your Own Adventure books as a kid! I love that she loves reading! Her imagination can take her anywhere!!
I sit here staring at a blank page. I know I should write more. I’m sure there is stuff in my head that I want to write about. But I sit here staring at a blank page. Where is my inspiration?
There will be posts about our basement.
I could write about back to school…but the kids are doing great and nothing overly exciting is going on. Munchkin seems to be paying attention better this year as she is able to answer the question “what did you do today?” and is generally excited about answering. Peanut comes home with new paintings every day. This is her dream!
Activities are slowing starting. Brownies is Mondays and they have had one meeting. She learned her Brownie promise and law and sang some songs. Choir practices have started. And Peanut was allowed to start before she is 5 because of the video of her I posted on YouTube. The choir director saw it and thinks she’ll do okay! :Swimming doesn’t start until October.
Hm….maybe I need to do this more often. Just stare at a blank page and write. I think I have some ideas for some posts for next week. Thanks for listening to be blab.
What do you do to find the motivation? How do you keep track of what you want to write about?
